Uber iPhone app update 1.0.45
The latest Uber iPhone app update has been released into the App Store and we’re super excited to unveil one of our most requested features ever: pre-request ETAs. Woot woot!
Previously, we would give riders an indication of ETA only after they’ve requested. However, with this version of the app, we provide riders with an estimated ETA to the nearest available car before they make a request (see below).
We’re hopeful that these pre-trip ETAs will remove much of the stress associated with times of high demand, and let you make informed decisions about how quickly to finish your drink / ask for the check before requesting your car.
Also in this version of the app, we’ve added the ability to update your credit card details on the go – something that previously could only be done via our website.
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
